Questions about our projects

No, Regreener is not a non-profit organisation but a sustainable commercial company. Being a non-profit organisation comes with certain (financial) limitations. Although Regreener is a sustainable commercial company, we are otherwise operating like a charity, by picking the best elements that serve our cause: publicly publishing financial information, customer revenue data, and impact data. Also, our margin of 25% is up there with the best charities. As it is our mission to have as big as an impact as possible, having a self-sustaining business model is the most efficient way of running our business. We want to be as streamlined and efficient as possible, being able to scale and attract top talent to reach our goals: regreen the world and fight climate change.​

We are not a charity, but a sustainable commercial company. So, you might wonder what our business model looks like. This is what happens to your money after you subscribe to our platform:
 
Step 1: After receiving your money, we pay VAT (value-added tax) to the government. On your invoice, you can see that 21% VAT is added to the purchase price. This 21% is paid to the tax authorities immediately. What’s left after paying the VAT is our revenue.
 
Step 2: 75% of our revenue goes into our climate change fighting projects and relevant transaction costs. This part of our revenue is called the Regreener Climate Fund. Through this fund we support some of the best climate change fighting projects out there. We plant trees, support anti-deforestation groups and invest in green energy and renewables. These projects compensate your carbon footprint. In your profile, you can see how much impact you have had so far by supporting these climate change solutions. Your profile shows the amount of trees planted and the CO2 that is compensated on your behalf. Your impact is visible and measurable, and the way your money is spent is transparent. We also publish proof of our tree planting, our carbon certificates and the donations that were made on behalf of the Regreener community. Therefore, the impact of the entire Regreener Community is transparent as well.
 
Step 3:The other 25% of our revenue is used to to run Regreener and to grow our platform. This part is used for things like transaction fees, team member compensation, hosting, licenses, marketing, IT & software, accounting, office rent and office costs. As it is our goal to create a big Regreener community, it is unavoidable that we make these costs. We want to create a community that has the power to really make a change. That’s why we need to spread the word. For that, just like any other company, we need people and resources.​

To calculate a baseline footprint, which we use for our monthly plans and one-time contributions we use multiple data sets:

  • Data from the World Bank which reports CO2 and other greenhouse emissions that occur in your country.
  • Data from the Global Carbon Project which reports emissions embedded in imports from overseas. We combine these imported emissions with the country of residence emissions.

On top of that we add an extra 10% to ensure that each member is becoming climate positive by offsetting more than their footprint.

At the moment, we are busy creating a personalized footprint calculator, which will provide our users with a precize estimate or their actual footprint. However, creating and optimizing a good and reliable calculator takes time. If you wish to receive updates on the footprint calculator and the geolocation, please sign up to our newsletter by using the sign-up function at the bottom of this page. If you already wish to calculate your carbon footprint now, we recommend the WWF Footprint Calculator.

The two factors responsible for this difference in prices are VAT (value-added tax) and commuter traffic.
 
Prices for personal plans are including 21% VAT. The VAT is paid to the tax authorities in whole. The prices voor business are exluding VAT, because businesses can reclaim the VAT they pay at the relevant tax authority. Therefore, VAT is irrelevant for businesses.
 
So, when we compare the personal and business prices including VAT, the prices for businesses are in fact higher than the prices for personal plans. These prices differ because of commuter traffic. We feel that carbon emissions as a result of commuter traffic should be compensated by the employer, not the employee. That’s why, for businesses, commuter traffic is included in the average carbon footprint calculations, and prices are a bit higher.
